Carrot Cake Bites
A good Carrot cake recipe can never go out of style. This recipe for Carrot Cake Bites is a great twist instead of eating a regular classic sliced carrot cake. No matter what the occasion is, carrot cake always wins because it’s cheaper, available all through the year, healthy to eat and easy to make. However, let’s admit it, how many times did we double our portion slices and load up on excess sugar in the name of our love for carrot cake? This carrot cake bites recipe is a great way of watching our portion serving size. It also keeps a check on our calorie intake. The cake in itself is unbelievably moist because of the buttermilk added to it, beautifully infused with cinnamon and nutmeg and has so many different flavors like orange, pineapple, etc. The nuts in the cake give the cake a dense and chewy texture, and the pineapple chunks along with grated carrots add a delicious and subtle crunch. Another wonderful highlight about t his cake recipe is the buttermilk glaze and orange cream cheese frosting that you just cannot avoid. Amazing cake recipes with creatively flavored frosting always make the occasions extra sweet and make the guests happy. If you’re tired of using store-bought frosting, this cream cheese frosting recipe is the one for you.
This recipe is also good for making cupcakes. If you wish to make this cake into one single sheet cake, you might be able to save on time with the frosting. As sheet cakes tend to be easier to make, you can save yourself from the extra effort of stacking the cakes or spending too much time frosting the cake layers. Simply spread the frosting, and you’re ready to go. This variation of carrot cake recipe is also a good idea for making birthday cakes for kids too because it has a spongy texture due to the oil and buttermilk that is used in the place of butter. If you wish to make this cake beforehand, you can freeze it and thaw it on the day of serving along with freshly made glaze and frosting. You can also add Brazil nuts, pecans or cashews for a slightly different texture and flavor and it is also a great way to incorporate more nutrition in this recipe. If you prefer nutty toppings, simply garnish the top of the frosting with chopped up nuts. Along with cinnamon, you can add other spices like pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, etc. to the recipe. If you can handle the sweetness of caramel sauce, you can drizzle some on top to enhance the flavors even more in the cake.
The nutrition in carrots is very high as it’s loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin A. Carrots also do not have any saturated fats and free from cholesterol as well. With all the health benefits that come from the nutrition in carrots, it is hard not to use them in dessert recipes. Always remember to use fresh spices when baking a cake like this one for achieving the best results regarding the flavor. Do not use old spices that have been sitting in your kitchen for a long time as spices tend to lose their aroma and do not have a long shelf life.
